MN Blogger meet-up and 3 Years of Wedded Bliss

So, I guess I shouldn't quit my day job to be a SAHM and full-time blogger anytime soon cuz I'm really not good at managing time and I've gotten even worse with a little baby in the house.

Anyways, last Tuesday Bailey and I were lucky enough to meet-up with some pretty great girls. I'm stealing all of these pictures since I'm a horrible excuse for a blogger and didn't take any pics. Huge thanks to the amazing Kelly for getting all of these pictures and for taking the most precious pictures of Bailey with Santa. I'm totally biased, but Bailey is probably the cutest thing ever with Santa. I pretty much wanted to wallpaper our house with those Santa pics.

All of us in our ugly sweaters with Santa. I think he was nervous with all of us standing outside his house and then invading it! Pretty sure that doesn't happen every day
It's a tough job being Santa's Little Helper
I've been such a good girl this year (2.5 weeks old), I deserve everything on my list
Ok, Ok - you can have that iPhone 5 you've been asking for so you can listen to your Baby Lullabies

After fun with Santa we searched around the mall for an elevator (that worked) so we could make our way up to the 4th floor to go to Dick's Last Resort. I'd never been there before but knew what it was all about.

The servers are mean and harass you (all on purpose). Definitely a fun place to go with a group of people with a sense of humor. We all got hats with some interesting stuff written on them, even Bailey.
My hat said "Will Flash for Walmart Gift Cards" - Classy, I know :)
Here's all of us with our hats on
All of the other girls did a Secret Santa gift exchange. I didn't sign up just in case I wasn't able to make it and I didn't want someone to not receive a gift. I wish I would've signed up since all of the girls got great gifts! There's always next time :)

Also, Lauren was so nice and baked us all yummy desserts to take home. I was so excited to finally meet her since I love reading her blog. I didn't get a chance to chat with her much, but I know she's a great baker :)

It was such a fun night! I can't wait for our next meet-up. Thanks again Kelly and Carolyn for coordinating this!

December 6 the hubby and I celebrated 3 years of wedded bliss! Not gonna lie, I've already requested a re-do of our anniversary for June 6, 2013 (3.5 years). With a newborn in the house and my husband being crazy busy with his new business venture our anniversary was not that exciting. He worked all day and Bailey and I stayed home and got stuff done around the house. He finally got home around 5:30-6. Got cleaned up and we headed to Mystic Lake Casino for dinner at the Buffet. I'd never been there before and I wasn't that impressed. I didn't enjoy the food that much - Oh well, I know for the future. We came home and exchanged the cards we got for each other and closed out the night watching The Voice so we're all caught up now. Super exciting, I know! We decided our gift to each other was getting pics of our family/Bailey's newborn pics. We spend so much money in the month of December that it's always hard to justify getting each other more gifts! I can't wait for our picture wall to be complete. I ordered the pics today so hopefully next week I'll get time to work on it.

Bailey's newborn pics are coming soon. I'm hoping for a post on Monday to showcase those :)


  1. It was great to see you and meet Bailey! I will vouch for her being the cutest in our group to meet Santa :) happy anniversary!

  2. It was so nice seeing you again, and I LOVED meeting Bailey! Such a cutie!! :) Happy anniversary!
